a cat in grayscale

…is a lovely thing indeed.

I'm not sure why I like working in black and white better than I like working in color, but it's always been that way for me. It's not unlike drawing - by subtracting the inessential, you're left with only the subject's essence.

If you want stellar photography, go visit Noah's place for a while. Me, I snap things that show up in my life, things that make me laugh or remember or just sum up life in general. That, and the cats have no problem whatsoever in posing for the camera, given that they're attention-hogging little catsluts when it's just the three of us in the house.

So here's what life has been like for the cats since we got our new digital camera:

If there is such a thing as reincarnation, I am most definitely coming back as one of my cats.

Updates soonish: trips being planned, various holiday bits being finalized, and for the three million of you who are expecting emails from me, you'll be pleased to know that I did another hand-of-God on my inbox today and reduced it from about 150 down to 70. Not to mention that I've got to do something about this backlog of photos that's building up on my desktop. I foresee a general image-dumping post in the not-so-distant future.


Don't worry, it won't be that interesting.


I feel you on image-dumping. Don't know how Noah and Heather ever get it all sorted through ... :D

My good photos will slowly head towards gravitylens.org. My upcoming project is to sort through all of the photos on Zot, the happy file server at home. I'll go through them all, keeping ones that I want, and then Andy will go through the rest to make sure I didn't miss any. I have many. Amy, you got the Powershot G2, right?

I can see Edmund likes his new throne...

Sigh... actually, there are times when I wish I could "let my hair down" (meant quite proverbially, given my recently-renewed baldie status) and post the fun little everyday things, not just the "good" stuff - all the things I feel I can't post on noahgrey.com because it's not serious enough. I actually have a domain reserved for the purpose, and your entry rather makes me want to finally do something with it. =)

Wow. Does it make me shallow if I say those are just *so* cute. It does? I don't care.

wow. my inbox hasnt seen double or even triple digits for several years now... its consistently in the thousands level... it practically tracks the S&P. (hmmm, I wonder....). and thats after mega sorting rules, 50+ folders, and spam assasin. maybe i should clear out some of it.... nah! =)

Heather: Yes. It's the Powershot G2.
